Tenyo Homing Die

Post by Brett H » Sun Feb 24, 2019 1:18 pm

I saw an auction for Homing Dice recently. I can't find much information about it except for a small description on Stereo's Tenyo blog.

I think I have an idea of how this particular version is done,; no idea if it's correct or not. Magic Wagon has a version of Homing Dice, but Tenyo's lends itself to more of a walkaround/strolling performance and Magic Wagon is more of a table performance. Is this a trick that performs well? Or is better as a collection item?

It is described in tenyoism and instructions on how to construct it

Looks like my next big Tenyo but after some of the 2019 tricks is Tenyoism

MW's Homing Dice is completely different from Homing Die by Tenyo. Tenyoism discribes there were actually 2 versions of this effect made by Tenyo.
In involves a gimmicked die (nothing overly complicated) en normal dice. The reason why this never became a big hit has probably to do with the need to palm die/dice in the routine, which laymen in Japan weren't very fond of.
You can indeed make your own version.
This is one of the reasons why I like Tenyoism so much; it gives you several opportunities to recreate past Tenyo tricks.
